Sakamoto

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/01_02_4.jpg
Voiced by: Hikaru Midorikawa (Japanese), Houston Hayes (English)

The titular character, a Gakubun High School first year student. Despite being new to the school, in one year he has gained the attention of the whole student body due to how amazingly cool he is. He is intelligent, good-looking, stylish, and most of all, does everything flawlessly with a touch of flair. The story revolves around his seemingly ordinary school life, which is, to others, a life brimming with coolness.


Sakamoto's stylish and cool tropes:

  • The Ace: Sakamoto is a guy who pretty much excels in everything.
  • Adjusting Your Glasses: By the bridge.
  • Ambiguously Human: A bit too perfect; always prepared, walks sideways down a riverbank at one point, superhuman athleticism, attracts the paranormal, outright teleports a couple of times, always wears his school uniform, nothing is known about his home life, leaves the school under mysterious circumstances after one year, claiming to be going to America to work with NASA but Hayabusa seems to think he's lying...
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: A male example that is Played for Laughs. Whatever bad things some people do to him that might tarnish his looks or style are instantly negated due to Sakamoto's innate ability to make anything into Bishie Sparkles or his penchant for being Crazy-Prepared. Therefore, even pranks that are designed to make him look bad only end up making him look even cooler.
  • Beauty Mark: Beneath towards the end of his left eye.
  • Big Man on Campus: Every girl wants to be with him, every guy wants his respect and credentials, and the teachers can hardly get mad at his ridiculous antics since he's topping in every subject. If anyone was the school's BMoC, it would be him.
  • Bishie Sparkle: Every drop of water he used, and sweat he makes will all become his sparkles...even the dust.
  • Bishōnen: The most good-looking and stylish guy in school. Naturally, there's a lot of beauty-related tropes that apply to him.
  • Bubble Pipe: He blew bubbles with Acchan, KEN KEN and Mario for fun during class break, which Mr. Kakuta mistook as illegal underage smoking on campus. Sakamoto was so stylish at that activity, Acchan, for the sake of blowing bubbles, actually quits smoking cigarettes!
  • But Now I Must Go: Leaves the school under mysterious circumstances after one year, claiming to be going to America to work with NASA, but Hayabusa seems to think he's lying.
  • Chaste Hero: Despite the fact that both women and (occasionally) men practically throw themselves at him, he shows no romantic interest in anyone.
  • Chick Magnet: Sakamoto has a plethora of fangirls who just can't get enough of his coolness.
  • Comically Missing the Point: When working as an errand boy for Maruyama, Sakamoto worked so hard that he converted gym equipment into what looked like a very comfortable bed. He was even going to sing a lullaby to help Maruyama sleep. When he gets dismissed from the job, Sakamoto thinks it's because he's a bad singer.
  • Cold Ham: Is quiet and reserved at all times and still manages to ham it up; especially when he calls his attacks.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Sakamoto always has something on hand to avoid getting things on himself.
    • An umbrella was somehow inside the boys' toilet room, and Sakamoto used it to block the water-dump prank KEN KEN supposedly executed.
  • Dramatic Wind: Like his bishie sparkles, he can summon the wind to pump up his attractiveness; flying flower pedals, or birds flying in the air are extra bonuses.
  • Dungeon Crawling: His whole segment of illegally renting porn for Acchan's gang.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Though he's mostly popular with girls, Acchan also became his fanboy and is strongly implied to have a crush on him.
  • Female Gaze: When he was changing clothes while working in WcDonalds and another time when he makes a make-shift bandage for Kubota.
  • Friend to All Living Things: He has a very soft spot for animals and will always go out of his way to help them.
  • Heroic Ambidexterity: When trying to get close to Sakamoto, Aina tries to sit on his left, so his right arm doesn't get on the way while he writes. She then finds him writing on a scroll with both hands simultaneously and from the center to the edges.
  • I Call It "Vera": Sakamoto calls his ruler 'Mr. Smith'.
  • Identical Stranger: He resembles the Korean actor Chorizo Chon quite a bit, enough to make Kubota's mother start projecting the actor onto him.
  • Improbable Age: At least in the anime continuity, he gets accepted into NASA's space program at about 17 years old, no extensive training program required.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's very aloof, which not-infrequently slips into outright rudeness, and there's the occasional sign that he actively enjoys winding certain characters up (particularly Mr. Kakuta), but he will always lend a hand if someone's genuinely in trouble.
  • Leitmotif: An orchestra with a saxophone solo at the beginning plays whenever he pulls off an antic.
  • Last-Name Basis: Everyone just addresses him as Sakamoto, his first name was never mentioned in the story.
  • Literal-Minded: Hayabusa wants Sakamoto to 'lend him his face' for a while, meaning to talk. Sakamoto pulls out a slab of clay, slams his face against it and hands over the clay-mould.
  • Mr. Fanservice: He's the one and only proponent of this trope for this series. No matter what he does, what he wears, or what he's doing, he will always be seen in a charming and sexy light.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: It is basically Sakamoto's super power to make everything he does incredibly stylish to an often ridiculous degree. It's the core to what makes him THE coolest guy around, and it's not a joke.
  • Not So Stoic: In the final chapter/episode he has some flashes of genuine emotion, especially when he gets one last look at his classmates calling to him from the window.
  • Oblivious to Love: Whether he just doesn't notice that the girls are chasing after him, or it just happens so often that he just doesn't notice, Sakamoto never seems to realize when someone's affection has crossed the line.
  • One Name Only: Lampshaded. Aina wanted to call him by his first name, but realized that she didn't know it. She tried to ask him directly, but it got censored out by one of the other girls running her nails down the chalkboard at just the key moment.
    Aina: He's not allowed to say it on the air?
  • Parasol Parachute: He made use of the strong wind to fly himself up with his umbrella to save a bird who was hit by a flying store sign.
  • Parody Sue: The whole plot is revolving about how Sakamoto is "the coolest" and has no imperfections due to the fact that he does everything as ridiculously-stylish as possible.
  • Personal Space Invader: A rare anime character example. Sakamoto will go to extreme lengths to aid people whenever he feels it's necessary; it may be stylish, but it can also be creepy at the same time depending on your point of view.
  • Phrase Catcher: Expect to hear the phrase "Sakamoto is so cool!" or variants of it whenever Sakamoto does something unbelievable.
  • The Quiet One: He only talks when he has something to say. He seems to prefer staying mysteriously silent and letting his actions speak for themselves.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Black hair, paler than most of his classmates, and generally considered the best-looking person in the whole school.
  • Ridiculously Photogenic: Sakamoto is a high-schooler who's perfect in EVERYTHING, including being photogenic. In one chapter, three Japanese Delinquents among his classmates trying to kidnap him and take pictures of him with no clothes to scare the girls of their class — only to get involved in a fire that Sakamoto get them out because of his "Fire Dance." After being rescued by a professor and admitting the guilt, the trio agree that Sakamoto was awesome after all, and the one who took the photo of Sakamoto stares at it for a bit and utters:
    I think... I'll make this my wallpaper.
  • Sexy Man, Instant Harem: Despite being only in his first year, he immediately became popular with girls almost as soon as the school year started.
  • Showy Invincible Hero: He cannot be defeated. He does everything in style. He's watched not to see if he has any failings, but by how much of a crazy show he can put up to surpass the obstacles given to him.
  • Silly Walk: When Sakamoto is seen from the side while climbing a stairway, he seems to be sliding upwards on Limited Animation. A proper look at what he is doing reveals he's climbing a half-dozen degrees with each step while his upper body remains static.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: He's quite intelligent, and the glasses only add to his coolness.
  • Stealth Mentor: His actions often lead to others bettering themselves in some way or another.
  • Stoic Spectacles: Sakamoto remains preternaturally calm, even in dangerous and/or ridiculous situations, save for very few moments of vulnerability. He also wears glasses.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: Taller than most of the other guys and considered better-looking than any of them too.

Atsushi "Acchan" Maeda

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/02_7.jpg
Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita (Japanese), Andrew Love (English)


  • Ambiguously Bi: Played straight instead of for laughs, interestingly. The reason Acchan started to lead his gang to bully Sakamoto was due to Sakamoto grabbing all the girls attention away from him, but in the end, he seems to develop a crush on Sakamoto due to Sakamoto's not reporting his misdeeds to the teachers.
  • Gaslighting: Manipulated by Fukase to believe that Sakamoto is the source of all his problems, similar to how some psychotic killers coerce people into killing their loved ones. This makes him go after Sakamoto with a bat, attempting to kill him during Sakamoto's speech to the graduation crowd note  in chapter 23.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Winks to the viewers as he advises on which restroom to use in order to get the most "peaceful experience."
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: "I Don't Need Warmth" has Acchan try to impress Sakamoto with his knowledge of snow so he can at least be on equal footing with him in one subject. After many attempts fail, his final suggestion (at Fukase's behest), a snowball fight, inevitably ends with Acchan's loss being beaned by a snowball filled with heat packets. Acchan assumes the gesture as a sign of Sakamoto not taking him seriously at all, and is rather broken up about it.
  • Hat of Authority: He's the pack leader of his class' "Gangster 3", and wears a red beanie.
  • Inelegant Blubbering: When he wakes up from his [[brainwashing and hurt Sakamoto.
  • Japanese Delinquents
  • Loving Bully: Sometimes tries to be this toward Sakamoto, but it's futile because Sakamoto is Sakamoto.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: His attempted assault on Sakamoto and failure to do so leaves him a blubbering mess, only able to state how sorry he was for even agreeing to do it.
  • Smoking Is Not Cool: He's been smoking since episode 1, but by episode 4, he quits tobacco and starts blowing bubbles thanks to Sakamoto's influence. However, Atsushi takes up smoking once again at the end of "I Don't Need Warmth"; this action was treated as a symbol of him coming under Fukase's corrupting influence.
  • Terrible Trio: With KEN KEN and Mario.
  • Tsundere: He holds great respect and admiration for Sakamoto, but he never feels like he's on equal footing with the boy. As such, many of his attempts to reach out to him are masked under challenges or dares.

Voiced by: Showtaro Morikubo (Japanese), Chris Patton (English)


  • Big Beautiful Man: A magazine model who noticeably has more belly fat than the rest of the cast.
  • Big Fun: After Sakamoto wins over him when trying to be funny does he decide to become a stand-up comedian.
  • Butter Face: Inverted, he’s got a handsome face, but with an obese body.
  • Class Clown: At least tries to be.
  • Dye Hard: In-Universe . One can see that it's dyed on his black eyebrows. He dyes it as a part of his model image.
  • Fan Disservice: While he took great care of his facial looks and maintained good fashion sense, he opted to go naked, saved for his undies and all, note  cracking jokes just to stand out thanks to Sakamoto beating him in every sense of word.
  • The Fashionista: Sera is a fashion model who’s taking cases for various magazines. Unfortunately for him, models not the most popular group at his school. However, he's a plus-sized model that is not Played for Laughs.
  • Fat Comic Relief: Sera attempts to invoke this to little success.
  • Naked People Are Funny
    • Belly Doodling: Someone from his class wrote "Partner Wanted" on his round belly when he was napping with only his undies on.
    • Full-Frontal Assault: To distract the whole student body away from mocking Yagi when she failed to succeed Sakamoto in their relay race, he strips completely naked down to the finish line. But of course, he still has the pennant, otherwise his class would not be ranked in.
  • Nice Guy: Arguably the friendliest guy in class 1-2, and truly shows his colors by making fool of himself in front of the whole student body to distract them from Yagi's failure.
  • Pet the Dog: Offers Kubota some hairstyle tips when he is considering what to get.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Despite making a fool of himself for much of the series, the sports festival gives him a time to shine and put his foolishness to a good cause. Because he took the heat for Yagi, he was finally able to get a girl to say he's cool (a feat unheard of in a class with Sakamoto in it).
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: He sometimes attends class wearing no clothing besides his trademark yellow-and-black striped underwear.

Yoshinobu Kubota

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/06_2.jpg
Voiced by: Akira Ishida (Japanese), Greg Ayres (English)


  • Adorkable: Socially awkward yet kinda cute.
  • Burger Fool: To address how Kubota has been extorted by bullies, Sakamoto gets him hired in a burger joint. Kubota isn't too happy with it at first, but quickly learns to work efficiently and, as Sakamoto hoped, grows a sense of self-worth.
  • Cool-Kid-and-Loser Friendship: With Sakamoto (undisputed Cool Kid). Despite hanging out with him all the time, Kubota never really has his low-rung school placement changed, and he's rather fine that way.
  • Designated Monkey: Straight example. Kubota is a character who often becomes the bully target by his school's delinquents.
    • Butt-Monkey: The poor guy cannot catch a break. He was bullied by some schoolmates during episode 2, have to deal with the obsession of his mother towards Sakamoto in episodes 3 and in 5, Hayabusa's subordinates shaved his hair to draw Sakamoto into a battle against their leader.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Running Gag. Kubota enjoys hair-styling as his hobby, but wasn't able to pursue it often due to his allowance being constantly taken away by bullies. But ever since he befriended Sakamoto and saved his allowance for himself, Kubota switches his hairstyle constantly to build back his own confidence.
  • Fan Disservice: He's not attractive. But thanks to Sakamoto befriending him, Dramatic Wind plays to his favor... with hair stuck on his lip for "extra bonus."
  • Fat Best Friend: Of Sakamoto's, maybe, of the ashamed type.
  • Gonk: Zigzagged. Compared to other of the male characters of the series, he is short, fat and is not handsome. However, he is not that hard to look at and has gentle features in his face, making him somewhat cute.
  • Only Friend: To Sakamoto. Most of the town likes and respects the guy to some extent, and Sakamoto's a decent enough person to reciprocate, but Kubota is the only one who actually has a proper day-to-day friendship with him, and Sakamoto keeps a particular eye out for his wellbeing.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Whenever he gets bullied by others.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: He looks exactly like his mother.
  • Traumatic Haircut: When Hayabusa's cronies ran out of tactics to make Sakamoto fight him, the pair resort to hurting his closest friend at the last moment. Thus, Kubota gets his head shaved of the hair he worked so hard to straighten out.
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Gender- and age-inverted, Kubota's dad is fairly attractive, but he is ugly.
  • Youthful Freckles

  • Animal Motif: She's often compared to a gorilla, though rarely directly.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Aina likes pretending to be moe. And because of that, she's popular with the boys.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Was at first a jerk towards Yagi and Tanaka but became friends with her after helping her exorcise a demon out of Sakamoto.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Compared to Kana-chan, her hair's much shorter.
  • Little Miss Badass: She'll do whatever it takes to own something related to Sakamoto, even if it means giving 8823-sempai a Power Fist.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: One can't see much muscle on her but her strength is compared to that of a gorilla.
  • School Idol: She's the most popular girl in their class.

  • A Day in the Limelight: Episode 8 focuses on their relationship with their class and how they were manipulated by Fukase.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Overtime, they started to care about their classmates, even apologizing for sabotaging the School Festival and helping them repair the damage thanks to Sakamoto giving them a second chance.
  • Recurring Character: These guys are characters with borderline Living Prop status, since their job in this show is to serve as representatives for those with no names or characteristics within class 1-2.
  • Those Two Guys: They're basically background characters who stay together and think the same until episode 8.

    Second and Third-Year Students 

8823-Senpai (Shou Hayabusa)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/12_2.jpg
Voiced by: Koji Yusa (Japanese), Ty Mahany (English)

Gakubun High School's second-year delinquent leader. Charismatic and cool-headed, he goes by the code name "8823," and is named "The Charisma Delinquent" of his school.


  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: When most audience thought Fukase gave his face a hard grind in the cotton-candy machine, it only resulted a tiny scar on his nose.
  • Bishounen: The female students of Class 1-2 find him attractive, just not as much as Sakamoto.
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: Despite the facade he puts up at school, he actually is quite the caretaker at home.
  • But Not Too Foreign: Based on how his family is presented, Hayabusa's implied to be a half-Caucasian Japanese.
  • Code Name: Played with. As "8823" stands for his surname, "Hayabusa." note 
  • The Dutiful Son: As the oldest child, he looks out for his father and younger brothers at home. Even agreeing to get out of his comfort zone and appear cultured in order to impress his father's date.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Even Hayabusa, as one of highest ranking delinquents in school openly expressed his distaste towards Maruyama going overboard in abusing Sakamoto for his own usage.
  • Fair Play Antagonist: Not really a villain, but when going up against Sakamoto he stops his minions from cheating for him against Sakamoto.
  • The Fettered: Even as a delinquent, he holds a strong code of honor and takes responsibilities in fixing his subordinates' wrongdoings.
  • Long Haired Prettyboy: Side braided and in a ponytail.
  • Japanese Delinquents
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Hayabusa usually goes by "8823," with his full name rarely mentioned in the manga.
  • Promotion to Parent: Hayabusa is raised by a single parent dad, and has 3 little brothers to look after. He's not perfect, but at least he tried his best to meet his family's needs.
  • Scars Are Forever: Recieves a scar on his nose after Fukase slams his head into a cotton candy machine, and it stays there even after the segment is over.
  • Smoking Is Cool
  • Two Beings, One Body: Played with in episode 10, Hayabusa asked Sakamoto for some last-minute help in aiding him about French dining etiquette. Sakamoto came up with the idea of hiding inside Hayabusa's clothing using his hands to perform the etiquette while Hayabusa just eat whatever Sakamoto feeds him. They then swapped places to Sakamoto being the head with Hayabusa hidden inside controlling the body to fight off the con artists who took advantage of Hayabusa's dad.

Maruyama

Voiced by: Tetsu Inada (Japanese), Greg Cote (English)

Gakubun High School's second-year vice-leader delinquent.


Fukase

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/20_3.jpg
Voiced by: Mitsuo Iwata (Japanese), Justin Doran (English)

Gakubun High School's third year senior who's well in his adulthood due to years of nonqualification to graduate, and is the most dangerous of delinquents.


  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Despite being a scheming and intelligent person, he deliberately never graduates since he fears life outside of school.
  • The Dreaded: All of the second years collectively shit themselves where Fukase is concerned. He's rarely defied, and going by the seniors' accounts it's pointless to try doing so...at least until Sakamoto had something to say about it.
  • Eyes Always Shut: He rarely opens his eyes.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Of a sort. After the other students forcibly "graduate" him by pushing him out the school, he evidently decides to finally mature and drops out of school to become a surfer.
  • Held Back in School: He's been at the school for a while, and missed so many days this school year that he'd have to repeat third year over again. He's exploiting the trope though, since he's in no rush to graduate.
  • Hunk
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: The most dangerous of the delinquents for sure, and has the red eyes to match.
  • Silly Rabbit, Idealism Is for Kids!: He rather scoffs at the rest of the graduating class for holding onto hope after they leave school, because he's aware of the challenges and soul crushing moments ahead. He likes to stay behind and watch them leave after the ceremony ends precisely because he's watching their supposedly naive smiles for the last time as they exit.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: In the anime at least, his voice barely goes above a whisper no matter who he's talking to. This includes when he's manipulating his juniors, talking about his twisted philosophy, or enjoying the sight of Acchan self destructing when he goes after Sakamoto.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Not exactly an extreme example, but he's pretty genuinely treated as an unnerving creep with little to no funny qualities, being an adult who seems to get a kick out of ruining the lives of high schoolers to "kill time", and who physically threatens and harms Hayabusa. This escalates later on, when he brainwashes Acchan to turn against Sakamoto and try to kill him in front of the whole school during the graduation ceremony, a 'game' that could have ended in serious injury for either student and could have gotten Acchan expelled or worse. Yikes.
